I am the Bridge

It’s okay to talk about racism!

Everyone can ‘be the bridge’ to ending racism in Saskatoon by generating ideas of inclusion among residents of the city.

The City of Saskatoon wants to encourage and invite you to talk about racism and ways to eliminate it by sharing videos of your experiences and messages of inclusion.

Racism is a global issue, not unique to Saskatoon. Racism is influenced by a range of historical, social, political and economic factors. It takes different forms in different contexts. An understanding of the nature of racism is essential in order to recognize and counter it successfully.

Share your personal story and messages by answering three questions:

1.  What does racism mean to you?
2.  How have you experienced racism?
3.  I am the bridge to ending racism in Saskatoon by…

You can answer these questions by recording a video on any mobile device (Apple or Android) or computer with a webcam using the OneStory application. Collected personal stories will be woven together to create a final video and public education campaign that will include billboards and social media posts.

Submission deadline is December 31, 2015.
